The church is at the end of Church Lane, a short road leading off Main Street.
Total species seen at this site:
The churchyard of All Saints Church has both mown areas and less managed grassland where numerous wildflowers are allowed to mature. The hedges are also of good size and structure with several shrub species present and a few mature trees. The church itself was built in the early 14th century and has changed little in external appearance since that time.
There are a number of ‘meadow’ species in the grassland sward, such as Lady’s Bedstraw Galium verum, Meadow Buttercup Ranunculus acris and Common Sorrel Rumex acetosa. Orange Hawkweed (or Fox and Cubs) also grows amongst the gravestones.
